Ann Arbor art fairs

Wonderful art in the largest fair I have even seen. In fact, technically, it's a collection of four art fairs all taking place at the same time, all over this little college town near Detroit.

After the failure to reach Hell, I ended up spending much more time than anticipated in Ann Arbor, so I had plenty of time to visit the thousand or so stands found in there.

I saw all kinds of crafts and fairs, from jewelry to painting, from tissue printing to pottery, from sketches to heavy metal sculptures. There were also many stands devoted to photography and those were that caught my attention the most.

I loved all photo exhibits, showing images printed on all kinds of media. From regular to handmade papers, canvas, to metal and glass or acrylic. As a non-interested buyer, I found the prices a bit steep. But as a potential seller soon of such stuff, I was more than pleased with those prices. It's all a matter of perspective.

There were also non-artistic booths, selling various items and many of those other vendors had a presence in each of the four fairs. These items ranged from food and beverages of course, to hats, clothes, newspaper subscriptions, etc.

After walking for over an hour and a half in the heat, I found a spot inside the university to cool down. Since it had Wi-Fi, I checked my emails and wrote a bit, catching up some of my blog backlog.

I then resumed my visit of the fairs before reaching the train station to return to Detroit. There, I learned my train (coming from Chicago) had almost a 3-hours delay. Was I upset? No, I saw there an opportunity to write more :-)

The more I get to know him, the more I like my new zen-self.
